Re: not a band question, a tax question
I recently went through this with my father. Turbo tax has a setting in the beginning where it will let you state that you are filing for a deceased relative. I would use turbotax if you think the taxes will be pretty easy and straight forward. If there may be complications from multiple sources of income etc. I would go with a professional tax person then.
As far as if things are owed then yes you will need to pay them or the money can come out of things left as inheritance (cash, home selling, car selling, etc.) at least as far as a tax expert told me about my father's estate.
